Ill Nino Release 'Blood Is Thicker Than Water' Video

Ill Nino have released a new music video for the track "Blood Is Thicker Than Water," a song which is deeply personal for frontman Christian Machado and is the latest single from the band's current album Till Death, La Familia.

Machado had this to say about the track, "'Blood is Thicker Than Water' is more than just a piece of music to me. Writing the lyrics seemed to me, at that point in my life, to be a healing process than anything else. Two years to that exact date, I held the hand of a beautiful human being and I watched her take her last breath.

"After her death, I held her for an hour, I cried, I thanked her for all her beauty, her innocence, and her love. I felt an incredible amount of regret, it was possibly the most painful moment I will ever go through in my life. I cannot put into words the feeling. I can say I attempted to put that emotion into the lyrics of 'Blood is Thicker Than Water,' but I know the depth of the words cannot bring to light the pain and suffering that she went through and also the mourning that followed.

"When we perform the song live, I sometimes have to put all my power into not being succumbed by that emotion once again. I hope the song can reach into the hearts of everyone who hears it. I hope it allows her beauty to live forever." Watch the video here.
